. into the downdraft, i like to fall back on themes that aren't ephemeral. google and apple. grand, i hate that stuff. it's a jinx. way too bullish. i don't want to get caught up with google's revolutionary eyeglasses or apple's also-ran watch, because everyone, including the huge holders now hate apple so much. its watch is being compared unfavorably to a timex. i don't want to sue apple because i'm underwater in my position. move on if you are so bummed. i don't focus on the noise out of washington that much. i don't want to be fooled into thinking this budget battle equals the fiscal cliff armageddon last year. the one that faked out so many people to dumping stocks at the worst time possible. the dividend tax would go to 40%. that didn't happen. nor do i want to make too much out of the issue of the downbeat for america's biggest retailer, walmart. they had a good quarter and caught a lot of short sellers off guard with that beat and a terrific dividend boost this morning. by the way, something that caused the stock to go up a buck, not down a buck as you would have expected if you took the ugly

at best, but one thing is for certain, people are way too gun-shy to use it. google powered through today. so many wish they were in google. it's the score of a lifetime, but when this terrific search-and-destroy the competition juggernaut fell last year after reporting a miss and gave uncertain guidance, did you use that pullback to buy, or did that move scare the wits out of you? did you use the further pullback another 50 points to put money to work in google? or was that sell-off another one you had to avoid even as you might have been waiting for another leg down? you're waiting for a further pullback. i think the answer is the pullback was wasted on many. it seems like the great growth days were behind them. there were more moving parts where the cost of acquisition continued spending on uncertain products, all you had in retrospect was the pullback you needed. the one that might have been waiting for, at least making matters worse, second pullback created what could have been a nasty-looking head and shoulders pattern. as the technical signal a mountainous top if they didn't hold.

't that theme? seems like a pull-back. don't want to touch that. like the google pull-back nobody wanted. most people don't want to go near the darn thing that up trend has been broken. tom brady, in the super bowl this year. home building stock down, what were you thinking? i was thinking, that loser eli manning couldn't get in the playoff this year. no. it was his joke of an older brother. after losing to a couple of rays in the super bowl. >> he might as well play for the lakers. owens corning -- you get the picture. we did have a hideous day. some sections did worry me. i am actually concerned about copper. it has been acting lame. china may indeed be slowing, i don't like to see the oil index plummet. the speculation. i don't like washington back on the front page. they come along at the right moment to put the cabarb on any rally. jellystone national park, yogi. i am concerned about the payroll tax holiday going away. i am worried about higher taxes, autosales could be slowing. did anyone think -- did anyone think we would maintain the streak longer than the ah mazing hittering streak of

don't want to touch that pullback. that would be like the google pullback to 650 before it went up to an all-time high of $806. most people don't want to go near the darn thing now that the uptrend's been broken. i heard that. the uptrend. same goes for -- tom brady who wasn't in the super bowl this year. uggs or lenar, when you saw that down $2.72, what were you thinking? i was thinking about eli manning. he couldn't get to the playoffs this year. no, maybe it was his joke of an older brother or should i say choke of an older brother after losing to a couple of rays in the latest super bowl. down $3.43 from the all-time high. there goes the housing neighborhood of stocks. you know what? i always thought that pink panther didn't have any game. he might as well play for the lakers. they might not even make the playoffs. yet owens corning playing like that colby, where's the beef? it was hideous, and some sectors do worry me. the mining sector was atrocious. talking to stephanie link. action alerts plus code director, she's saying, wow, did you look at that? i saw freeport down big.
